The History of Santaland San Francisco, the SPCA Windows and the Great Tree  

Macy's Union Square has hosted Santa for more than half a century, and during his most recent time he has shared the spotlight with his four-legged friends. For more than 30 years, Macy's Union Square has partnered with San Francisco SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) to feature adoptable pets in their windows during the holiday season and an adoption center inside the store. What's better than seeing Santa, puppies and kittens all in the same spot?

The holiday traditions continue just outside the store in Union Square Park, where the 83-foot-tall Great Tree has proudly stood for 30 years.
